Our Family

Dr. Peggy Keng


At the age of 10, Dr. Peggy Keng knew she wanted to be a veterinarian. " I have always loved animals.  I would bring home every stray cat and dog, try to raise every baby bird that would fall out a nest, and keep every lizard in a shoe box feeding them bugs!"

Dr. Keng obtained her Bachelor's in Biological Sciences from the University  of California, Irvine, a Master's of Animal Science from California State Polytechnic University in Pomona, and a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine from Ross University in St. Kitts in 2003.  She became IVAS certified in veterinary acupuncture in 2009.

She shares her home with her husband and two kids as well as 2 dogs: Ruby and Pumpkin and 4 cats:  Nibbz, Sirena, Snowflake, and Rockstar.
